About GSM London

This is an exciting time for GSM London. Founded in 1973 and formerly known as the GreenwichSchool of Management, we are one of the UK’s largest independent for-profit HE providers and one of a few private providers to have passed QAA Institutional Review. With 2 campus locations in London and over 6,000 students, we are committed to widening access to enabling social mobility through our focus on strengths based learning and employability. Working closely with our validating partner, the University of Plymouth, who are supportive of our ambitious growth plans, we are building organisational capability to take us forward as we seek to attain degree awarding powers and university status. 

With a focus on the GSM London student experience and supporting students who have different levels of preparedness for further and higher level study, we have remodelled our advisory, wellbeing and engagement teams so that all student facing services work together to provide high levels of services and support. These teams work with other professional services teams and students themselves with an intention to continuously improve and evolve the services available through the Student Hubs at our Greenwich and Greenford campuses.
